Wiley starts working with Kudos

Share this on social media:

Wiley has announced a new partnership with Kudos. The Kudos platform, which will launch in April, is designed to measure, monitor, and maximise the usage and impact of published articles, by providing a new way for authors to use social media to engage the digital community with their research.

The platform enables users to create ‘profiles’ for their published articles. By using short titles, lay summaries and impact statements, authors can make their articles more engaging for a digital readership accustomed to strategically browsing the millions of potential papers at their fingertips.

'The research process today does not end with online publication; rather that is the starting point for authors in explaining and sharing their articles, particularly using social media to ensure that their published work is at the forefront of the debate within their community,' commented Philip Carpenter, vice president & managing director, research communications at Wiley. 'This partnership will see Kudos providing essential guidance, supported by measurable results, for Wiley’s authors and society partners.

As part of the partnership, authors of Wiley articles included in the trial will be able to compare their metrics to those of their peers and will be offered personalised guidance about maximising the potential of their paper.
